Charlotte Despard (1844-1939), Hon. Treasurer and President of the Women's Freedom League. Charlotte originally served as joint Honorary Secretary of the WSPU but left in 1907 as a result of a number of policy differences with the Pankhursts. With Teresa Billington-Greig and Edith How Martyn, Despard subsequently formed the Women's Freedom league. Under her leadership the Women's Freedom League encouraged its members to take part in non-violent resistance such as evading the Census of 1911, refusing to pay any taxes until women were given the vote, and wearing the League's colours of green, white and gold.
